Here’s what people are saying about Musician Ignition:

“Bravo!  Congratulations on a successful and well thought out book. I firmly agree with the premise that “It’s not about you!”  That is a hard pill for students and young artists to swallow in today’s society where if it isn’t about them – it should be. Also, I love your idea about deadlines and timelines.  I’m going to make myself be better on that aspect and keep to them!  I would love to use this book as a resource with many of my students in the future.  It is thoughtful, concise, and applicable.”

Chris Imhoff

Powell Trumpets, Performing Artist

“I absolutely LOVE this. You have explored, in depth, the topics I try to communicate to my students. Now, it is all in one place! Bravo. I want all of my students to read this.I found it very easy to read, positive, and thorough. I appreciate how you were able to stress the complications of a career in music without discouraging one from pursuing his/her dream. I found myself pondering a few points towards the end for myself and my own growth.”

Wendy Jones

Voice Instructor/Professional Vocalist/CCM Voice Specialist

“Good stuff man!I loved the obituary of musical excuses idea. Think I’ll go write mine over the next few days! “

Patrick Young

Saxophonist/Music Teacher

“Having been a music entrepreneur for nearly 2 decades, I have sought out coaching and mentors from a variety of arenas over the years.  Many of the principles and strategies offered in Musician Ignition are widely adhered to by successful people in a wide variety of occupations and endeavors, and with much success. 

I don’t know that I’ve ever seen such a comprehensive, “whole person” approach to the music business – and it is refreshing.  This has made me rethink some of my own efforts, given me hope for future endeavors, and answered some questions I didn’t know I had.”

Jim Beaver

Guitarist, Composer, Director –

“Wow, wonderful reading, inspirational and very welcome! Being a musician myself, and raising a family with only music as my career, it seems that I have experienced similar crossroads. I like the organization and worksheets. I love the quotes! Bravo Paul.”

Byron Hedgepeth


“I really love the worksheets at the end and think they are a great, specific way for budding musicians to hone in on their strengths and weaknesses and start to develop a plan to create a career in the music business as well as a life! “

Amy Jones

Music Director/Choreographer

This book is easy to read and then the reader realizes how deep and insightful it is. I so wish it had been around when I was struggling to put together my career as a professional musician. Great job on making it practical and building in an accountability with each review section!
